The Costa Amendment

There’s potentially some good news but we need your help – in writing a short letter to your MP – to make sure it happens.

A Conservative MP, Alberto Costa, is proposing an amendment to the motion being voted on in the House of Commons next Wednesday 27th Feb. The amendment (see below) calls for the Prime Minister to ask the EU to jointly agree *as soon as possible* to adopt the citizens’ rights part of the Withdrawal Agreement – whatever happens with Brexit.

Mr Costa has a lot of support from MPs already, cross party and across all wings of the Conservative party. The3million and British in Europe are writing to every single MP to ask for their support – to increase the chances of the Speaker selecting this amendment next week.

However, it will make much more impact if MPs receive emails from their own constituents – so please write!

The amendment:

“This House considers the Prime Minister’s statement of 26th February and requires the Prime Minister to seek at the earliest opportunity a joint UK-EU commitment to adopt part two of the Withdrawal Agreement on Citizens Rights and ensure its implementation prior to the UK’s exiting the European Union, whatever the outcome of negotiations on other aspects of the Withdrawal Agreement”
